He became the company’s second president in 1975 and, until his retirement in 2006, he directed the firm’s steady growth, building a reputation for innovation and integrity while positioning the company as a premier waterfront consulting engineering firm. Nichol was a Commissioner of the National Commission of the US Section at the Permanent International Association of Navigation Congress (PIANC). He served as a member of the National Research Council Commission on Engineering and Technical Systems and was a Fellow of the Society of American Military Engineers. He was conferred the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Distinguished Member Award (2011), Outstanding Projects and Leaders Award (OPAL) Lifetime Achievement Award for Management (2010), and ASCE California Lifetime Achievement Award (2013). He also received the 2005 Golden Beaver Award for Engineering from The Beavers, a heavy construction organisation. Robert Nichol’s son, Eric Nichol, assumed the role of Moffatt & Nichol president and CEO in 2006 and continues to lead the company’s dayto-day business activities. He says his father will be deeply missed but will be remembered for his many professional contributions to the industry and will live on in the enduring culture that he established at the company. Lars Erik Granholm Lars Erik Granholm, ‘founder’ of the International Marine Certification Institute (IMCI), has died at the age of 81. Born in Finland in 1934, he emigrated to the USA in 1961 where he joined the Outboard Marine Corporation (OMC). From 1974 to 1981 he authored small boat regulations while serving as the project manager for standards development with the US Coast Guard. In 1981 he then joined the Chicagobased National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), establishing the NMMA certification programmes. During this time, he proposed the establishment of a global organisation to CE-certify recreational craft, their components and engines for and in the EU. This organisation went on to become IMCI and was registered as an international non-profit organisation in June 1993. Based in Brussels, Belgium, it is the market leader in CE certification for the global boating industry and runs the Blue Star Marina certification programme. In 2004 Granholm received the prestigious NMMA Charles F Chapman Award for his lifetime achievements in the marine industry. “Lars was the best teacher and mentor to me,” commented IMCI managing director Ulrich (Uli) Heinemann, who succeeded Granholm in 1999. “He made IMCI more than 20 years ago and we still stick to most of his philosophies. I wish Leena and the Granholm family all the strength they will need in a future without him.” he added. 62 www.marinaworld.com - May/June 2016
